Do you have many different passwords to remember and type in when you log in somewhere? Well, I do. At first I found this annoying, and tried to make it easier by clicking on ‘remember me’ to make the login proces go automatically. Untill I wanted to login from a different computer, and all of a sudden I didn’t know my password anymore and I had to go through a forgotten password procedure. I even had to go to my bankoffice to get a new password. Not fun!
So, I thought of a solution to 1. remember my passwords more easily and 2. to make the whole process a little more fun and meaningful. This is what I did…
I changed my passwords into something meaningful for me personally. Something that would give me energy, words that focus me on a goal I have, words that work as affirmation, words that inspire me or words that relate to the account I have to sign in.
To create an attitude of gratitude, your password could be something like: grateful3 (so you think of 3 things that you’re grateful for, everytime you log in)
To keep your focus on a salestarget, you can choose a password like: over50
Are you in service, you can choose something like: clienthappy
If your computer asks to remember your password, ofcourse you say no. It’s more fun and effective if you have to type it everytime you log in.
